“Low carb snacking regulates your blood sugar which can help you avoid a mid-afternoon energy slump”
- Linda O'ByrneAtkins Nutritionist
A far as most diets go, snacking is usually a big ‘no-no’. In fact, some people would go as far as saying snacking is a sure-fire way to gain weight. Not with Atkins.
Help conquer cravings
In fact, it can be a positive thing. Grazing on something healthy between meals can help curb hunger, banish cravings and improve concentration.

Plus a couple of healthy snacks also gives you an opportunity to fill any nutritional gaps so your body always has all the nutrients it needs.
